Restylane in Melbourne, FL
Moderate to severe wrinkles and folds add years to your age. Before the advent of dermal fillers and injectables, such as Restylane®, men and women had to undergo surgery to look younger. Castellon Plastic Surgery Center, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Mauricio J. Castellon, MD, offers Restylane® and other dermal fillers and injectables for men and women who live in Melbourne, Brevard County and the surrounding communities of Central Florida.
What is Restylane®?
Restylane® is an FDA-approved cosmetic injectable product that contains hyaluronic acid, one of the keys to young skin. Like collagen, hyaluronic acid gives your skin the support it needs to remain youthful and free of lines and wrinkles. The acid works by attracting water molecules with which it then binds to give your skin the optimum amount of hydration. The water adds volume naturally which fills in wrinkles and creases.
Benefits of Restylane®
If you want to look younger without surgery, Dr. Castellon may recommend Restylane®. The benefits of the treatments are:
- Non-surgical, so no downtime or scarring
- Immediate, long-lasting results
- Can be used around the eyes, lips, mouth, cheeks, and temples
- Contains no synthetic substances
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Restylane®?
The ideal candidate for Restylane® treatments has moderate to severe:
- Nasolabial folds that extend from the outer edges of the nostrils to the outer corners of the mouth
- Wrinkles and creases around the lips and eyes
- Deep wrinkles in the cheek and temple area
Restylane® is also FDA-approved for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years old.
How is Restylane® Unique Amongst Dermal Fillers and Injectables?
In addition to treating moderate to severe wrinkles, Restylane® is recommended for men and women who have lines and wrinkles in the tear trough area of the face.
What Should I Expect From Restylane® Treatments?
Dr. Castellon uses a very fine needle to inject Restylane® into the middle and deep dermis of the skin. You may feel a slight pressure as the product is injected. The results of Restylane® treatments last up to 12 months.
How Long Does It Take to See Results from Restylane®?
Results are immediate, and you will continue to see improvements as the hyaluronic acid works with water to smooth the skin.
